Willow Smith shares she’s polyamorous on ‘Red Table Talk’
Pinkett Smith asked her child how she came to understanding that reality, to which Willow Smith stated, “With polyamory, I feel like the main foundation is the freedom to be able to create a relationship style that works for you and not just stepping into monogamy because that’s what everyone around you says is the right thing to do.”
“So, I was like, how can I structure the way that I approach relationships with that in mind?,” the more youthful Smith stated. “Also, doing research into polyamory, the main reasons why monogamous relationships — or why marriage, why divorces happen — is infidelity.”
“When you were like, ‘Hey, this is my get down’, I was like, ‘I totally get it,'” Pinkett Smith stated. “Wanting to set up your life in a way that you can have what it is that you want, I think anything goes as long as the intentions are clear. You know what I mean?”
Smith’s grandma stated, “For somebody like me, it feels like it’s really all just centered around sex,” though she confessed to having actually considered it herself.
“Even outside of the counseling that you get from your pastor before you get married, ’cause most people that get married, you know, will get counseling from their pastors because there is a religious aspect to it, a God aspect to it, Jada,” Banfield Norris stated. “And we had deep conversation about, what does this mean to us? What do we wanna create for ourselves? And we actually talked about polyamory, and was that something that we wanted to explore? We had that conversation.”
However, for Smith, it’s obviously less about the sex and more about the liberty.
“In my friend group, I’m the only polyamorous person, and I have the least sex out of all of my friends,” she stated.
